My two nephews enjoyed the three-story tall indoor play area, complete with tunnels, little rock walls, slides, and rope walkways. Adults are welcome to follow kids through the tight spaces, and I was sweating profusely after four trips upwards from the first floor to the...More

It seemed somewhat poorly maintained and was pretty drab. Time to freshen up the place. Virtually no staff to be seen. Who is running this place? The Please Touch Museum in Philadelphia is 100 times better.

One of the better Children’s Museums we have been to. Multiple floors with activities for kids of all ages. Easy to spend a few hours in here doing everything. Highlights for our daughter included the Royal Farm market, the diner, and the water play area.

Everyone pays to go in. Since this is a hands-on kind of place, even parents will be able to "play."
